Can’t resist.

Remember how I mentioned my one sister being slightly OCD about the Ruby Lou Dolls? Here’s the proof:

Yep, one for all 4 of her daughters and one for one of my nieces. If you know Angie C’s family, can you guess which doll is for whom? One of my other sister’s, Ada, made this one:Angie A has made a couple too which are waiting for faces still. I will post them when they are done. The best part is that she made one that looks just like her without even realizing it. Ang even has the long skinny legs to match Ruby Lou, not fair… You’ll love it. Somehow she had time to make some dolls in between releasing the 2nd edition of her cookbook.

p.s. Notice a common “A” name theme? Yep, all 6 kids in my family start with A, and both of my brothers married A names too. Now that I have 2 W names for my boys, I always wonder if I’ll continue the trend?!

  1. Those dolls are awesome. You have such a crafty “A”dorable family! The real question is could someone un-crafty like me make one?

  2. So cute. I’d really love an estimate on TIME it takes to make one. I’m not a genius sewer… so seriously, from start to finish? I can’t wait to make one (well, actually 3). I added a link to you on my blog. I hope you sell LOTS of patterns cause I think every girls NEEDS one of these! So adorable!

  3. Jewel, if it’s your first doll, to be generous it probably takes about 4 hours from start to finish. If you’re making all three together it should save some time, especially if you do it “assembly line” style. That’s how I did mine, I did as much sewing on all the dolls as I could, and then I did all the ironing at once. Cutting out all the dolls together too should save a lot of time. I can’t wait to see your finished dolls!
